The cost incurred in the renovation is said to be over GH¢42,000 covering the re-roofing of the facility, changing the ceiling to modern status. Electrical wiring which was in a bad state has been fixed, ceiling fans have been changed, window locks were also changed, the painting was done, a new fridge was provided and above all, the facility was also been restocked with sick beds to enable it to serve its purpose.

Speaking at the ceremony, Mr. Abdul Ganew Bangaham Seidu, a member of the year group entreat the school authorities to ensure the facility is properly taken care of so that when next they come and see it, they would be motivated to want to do more for the school.

He similarly cautioned that if they ever come and find the facility in a terrible shape, they would not hesitate to lock it up and that it would mean they lack the duty of care to maintain it.

The Assistant Head of Administration of the school Mr.Dulana Ibrahim Yussif who was at the short ceremony, on behalf of the school management thanked the year group for their kind gesture and urged them to continue to support the school.

Now we have refrigerators. All of these are been done by OGA 1997 year group." Said Alhassan Alhassan, the senior prefect of the school.
